The Federal Government said from December 31, 2019, teachers not certified by the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN) will be flushed out of classrooms across the country.
TRCN registrar Prof. Josiah Ajiboye stated this while inducting over 200 Education graduates of the University of Ibadan on Friday.
Ajiboye threatened that the quacks teaching Nigerian children will be thrown out and replaced by qualified and certificated Education graduates to mould sound future leaders for the country.
He said: “It is worthy to stress the importance of today’s induction ceremony in line with government directives. The Federal Government has directed that by 31st of December 2019 all unqualified people practising the profession of teaching will d be swept from the classroom and their place will be occupied by young and vibrant professional teachers like you.
“We need to appreciate the fact that education unlocks the key to modernization, but the teacher holds the key to that door. He is the hub of any educational system and the major determinant of its quality.”
